¿Por qué se siguen construyendo nuevas escuelas encapsuladas y con las sillas en filas indias. Después se atreven a llamarlas 'Escuelas del Siglo 21'...

Durriyyah Kemp's curator insight, July 29, 2014 11:21 AM

It is important for educators to be very strategic concerning classroom design.  I reiterate this point to K-12 teachers often.  Remember, you're developing a learning environment that is inclusive of all students and is designed to engage all students.

James Marshall:  "As the title implies and the author asserts, this is first and foremost a scholarly work that targets the use of transmedia storytelling in higher education. The book delivers on that commitment, and provides much in the way of theory and concept to ignite the reader’s thinking around the topic."

In early trials, it allowed paralyzed rats to walk again with fewer side effects than other treatments...Read More....
